Photos by Ben Irwin. Words by PPM News. Let it be known that we, at Pinpoint, have a lot of love for The Soft Pack. The shimmering jangle of their garage beach rock is just the kind of sonic sweetener we like to take with our morning coffee or burn...

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 – Orange Stage Preview

It looks like we’ve finally come to the end of our staging. We talked funny in Yellow, bleep bloops in Blue, raging in Black now we’re on to Orange. The main stage, if you will. The biggest acts with the closest thing to universal appeal. Being a contrarian shit, I...

[Tin Wyrm] 003 – My Lovecraft Mixtape

[Tin Wyrm] 003 – My Lovecraft Mixtape

Dear Howard, I am not even going to pretend this is a novel idea. Heavy metal’s fascination with early 20th century writer Howard Phillips Lovecraft is somewhat unhealthy — bordering on psychotic. Listing 14 songs which are based from the writer’s work is no monumental task. Especially due to the...

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 – Black Stage Preview

Now that we’ve considered the antics of the Yellow Stage and the eclectic electrics of the Blue, it’s time for darkness to descend, ladies and gentlemen. It’s time for punk rock and hardcore and stoner and grind to crush your laughably infantile dreams of getting out of this festival alive....

Often their artists offer at least three of the four and though many of the acts this year are not exactly what...

Photos by Misty Brewster // Words by Delicious Everyone says that Sunday at Treasure Island is always the mellow day. Being my first time at the festival, I guess I had to take everyone’s collective word for it – based on the lineup, it looks like Treasure Island 2012 stuck...

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 – Yellow Stage Preview

HOLY SHIT! We’re ten days away from Fun Fun Fun Fest! You know what that means, kids. It’s time we take a comprehensive (albeit questionable) look at the plethora of acts scheduled to raise some hell over Austin the first weekend in November (and yes, P-I-P, Single and Three-Day tickets...

Muse – The 2nd Law

Muse – The 2nd Law

Imagine Kashmir updated for the year 2012 – that’s how the new Muse record The 2nd Law begins. It beats you over the face with stuttering drum and guitar chugs that would normally only be recognizable if my right forearm could be musically mapped when I stumble upon adult websites....

Coheed and Cambria – The Afterman: Ascension

If you have ever heard Coheed and Cambria, you already have an opinion of them, and in fact, I would be surprised if you’re reading past the title of this after having seen that it was talking about their new record. Either you buy into their sci-fi-prog-pop or you dismiss...
